Burning with Pride

We’re burning bright with pride now that we’ve shrunk our electricity use by more than 90 per cent.

A FortisBC PowerSense rebate helped us cover the cost of upgrading all 36,000 light bulbs on our Tree of Hope display to energy-efficient LEDs. These new, durable bulbs are easy to maintain and will save us about 70,000 kilowatt hours of electricity each year – that’s enough to power about five average homes — and the investment will pay back in energy savings in just two years.

We’re pleased to be shrinking both our environmental footprint and our electricity bills. Among all expenses, energy use is one of the most controllable, and we’d rather put our energy into the community and provide funding for local charitable organizations.
